We offer a family discount for three or more family members. Please see the Fee Schedule of your chosen activity for additional information.

Yes, we have a small seating area in both the Trampoline Hall and Karate Room where parents, caregivers and siblings may sit for the duration of the class. We ask that you do not record you child’s class without first speaking to the supervising coach.

All feedback, both positive and negative, should be directed to the Head Coach of your chosen activity. Please do not speak with coaches on the floor during class time as it takes away from the time they are able to spend working with the athletes.

If you are running late, please call the Club House on 9524 5958 so that arrangements can be made to supervise your child until you arrive.

Karate FAQ

Beginners under the age of 10 years old should attend our entry level Junior Beginners class which runs for 30 minutes, twice a week. Once a junior has achieved their first official Shotokan Karate International Australia grading, they are encouraged to join the graded or general classes. Beginners aged 10 and above should participate in the general Karate Class.

Yes. Students registered to attend only one class per week may attend the next available class to make up for their missed class. This option is not available to those students who have registered to train twice per week.

Karate traditionally uses a plain white Karate Uniform. These may be ordered via the Youth Club, and come in a variety of weights, sizes, and costs. The cheaper uniforms are recommended for beginners.

No. A new member may commence training wearing shorts and a T-shirt, for warmer weather, or a loose fitting tracksuit style garment, for the cooler weather. Clothing must be free of zippers, press studs, etc.

Beginners only require a uniform. Advanced students will require additional equipment such as a mouth guard, mitts, groin protection and breast protection. More information is provided to students as they reach the appropriate training level.

Nothing that has the potential to cause injury may be worn during training. This includes jewellery, piercings and hard hair restraints (soft bands are acceptable).

Only specialized sporting glasses or soft contact lenses may be worn. Normal spectacles that have not been specifically designed for sporting activities must not be worn during training. Please speak to the Head Coach before making any purchases.

Trampoline and Tumbling FAQ

Our Club offers structured classes that allow children to learn through safe and progressive development. Our coaches are accredited with the national gymnastics body Gymnastics Australia and attend regular First Aid training. Athletes are never unsupervised and do not learn advanced skills such as somersaults until they are both physically and mentally ready. We also use specialised equipment, such as training aids and an overhead harness, to ensure the safety of every athlete as they learn new skills.

This structured approach to trampolining allows athletes to set goals, learn new skills, meet new friends and have fun in a safe environment.

Our Club currently has three Eurotramp trampolines, one Eurotramp double mini trampoline and a 20-metre air floor tumble track. The club also has a single mini trampoline and a range of coaching aids such as soft boxes, foam shapes and hand held items such as hoops and balls for skill development and co-ordination drills. Additionally, we have a specialised harness system installed over one of our trampolines to help athletes safely learn advanced skills such as single and multiple somersaults.

Children under the age of 6 should attend our Junior Jumpers class. Otherwise, our General Trampoline Classes cater for athletes of all ages and abilities. These classes run every weeknight, please refer to our Timetable for class times. During your trial, one of our senior coaches will assess your child’s abilities and determine whether they are eligible to attend the Competition Class.

If you are currently in a General Class and would like to move up to the Competition Class, please speak to a Senior Coach.

Our General Ability Classes have a recreational focus. Athletes in these classes get experience on all apparatuses and are taught a range of skills including basic acrobatics and parkour. These classes are designed to enable our athletes to have fun and get fit whilst making new friends and developing their self confidence.

Our Advanced Classes have a competitive focus with a greater emphasis placed on skill refinement and technical proficiency. Athletes in these classes follow a specialised strength and conditioning program and work with highly qualified coaches to prepare them for competitions.

While everyone is welcome to attend any of our General Ability Classes, athletes wishing to attend the Advanced Class must be training at or above Level 4 in at least 2 apparatuses, and be approved by the Head Coach.

Athletes do not need to be enrolled in the Advanced Class to attend competitions. If you are interested in trying competitions for the first time, it is a good idea to attend a Grand Prix. These competitions are held at the end of each term and are less involved than State Trials and State Championships. You do not need to own a tracksuit or leotard to attend these competitions.

All Youth Club athletes receive a training shirt upon registration. You may also choose to purchase a Club tracksuit for $100.

The club training shirt should be worn when attending classes or Youth Club events. At training, athletes should wear comfortable shorts or pants that allow for a range of movement.

Athletes are not permitted to train in hooded jumpers or jackets. Long hair should be tied back away from the face and socks must be worn on the trampolines at all times. Additionally, no jewellery is to be worn during training. This includes fitness bands and watches.

If your child misses a class due to circumstances outside your control such as illness or misadventure, they may be eligible to attend a make up lesson on another night. However, this is dependent on class availability. Please talk to Louise or Mr Bull to see if you are eligible for a make-up lesson.

Our Club does not have a specific class for teens however our General Ability Classes cater for athletes of all ages and abilities. You can speak to Mr Bull about which classes might suit you best based on current enrollments.

Our Club does not currently run specialised adults classes however there are class options available to new and returning athletes. We often work with athletes from a range of aerial sports including diving, snowboarding or wakeboarding who are interested in improving their basic skills and aerial awareness.

If you are interested in our classes, please contact us so that we can discuss a class arrangement that will work best for you.

No, we do not currently offer these programs at the Youth Club.

We run classes during the day throughout the week for schools and Respite Care groups. If you are interested in joining our community program, please contact us with your class size, preferred day and time and we will let you know if we can accommodate you.
